Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Ask Your Own Canada Law Question

I am sorry for the confusion in terms of the initial discussion. That was a greet bot and not a person. I am a lawyer in Canada.

You cannot apply for a study permit from within Canada as a visitor.

You will need an offer of enrollment and then leave Canada to apply for the study permit.

Does that fully answer your question?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
